When China announced its national plan to promote its native IC industry, this raised many questions. With its rapid growth, China's IC industry is becoming an emerging force globally, increasing the importance of understanding the answers to these questions. Few people really understand China's IC industry. For example, what is the real state of the China's IC industry today, what implications does such a promotion have to the global IC, EDA and other related industries, and what goals are China's IC industry working to achieve?
This presentation will give an overview of the Chinese IC market, followed by an introduction of China's IC industry with an emphasis on fabless companies. China’s native products, design technologies, and talents will be described in detail to provide an objective and comprehensive picture of China's IC industry. In addition, China's current status in design automation technology and indigenous EDA companies will be discussed.
As China is a unique country with huge population, vast territory, rapidly growing but unbalanced economy, and many diverse cultures, life-styles and traditions, its native product demands are also diverse. How to meet these drastically different requirements with a reasonable time to market while keeping costs low presents a big challenge. A rapidly growing IC industry in China will force design and EDA engineers, both inside and outside China, to explore, to innovate as well as to collaborate. With a large talent pool addressing unique challenges, who can say there will not be new technologies, methodologies and products emerging to change the rules of the global information technology landscape?
